NEW YORK, July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jesup & Lamont, Inc., (Amex: JLI), a full-service boutique brokerage and investment banking firm serving retail and institutional clients, today announced the LifeTech Capital Group companies presenting at its 2009 Growth Stock & National Sales Conference to be held at the Waldorf Astoria Boca Beach Club on July 30th, 2009 in Boca Raton, Florida. In addition, former FDA Commissioner Dr. Lester M. Crawford D.V.M., Ph.D., will be the keynote speaker for the event.
"As large pharmaceutical companies continue to struggle with patent expirations, pricing pressures, R&D cuts and changes to the U.S. healthcare system, we believe smaller biotech companies represent an exciting source of value-creation for investors," says Stephen M. Dunn, Managing Director of Life Sciences Research at LifeTech Capital Group. "With the government's recent demands for comparative effectiveness of drugs, there is a corresponding increase in demand for companies with novel, breakthrough approaches. We're pleased to have such a diversified group of innovative biotech companies presenting at our conference."
Some of the companies presenting on July 30th include Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: PPHM), Cytori Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CYTX), NovaBay Pharmaceuticals (Amex: NBY), Nabi Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: NABI), OXiGENE Inc. (Nasdaq: OXGN), Access Pharmaceuticals (OTC Bulletin Board: ACCP), Echo Therapeutics (OTC Bulletin Board: ECTE), Raptor Pharmaceuticals (OTC Bulletin Board: RPTP), Neoprobe Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: NEOP) and Oxygen Biotherapeutics (OTC Bulletin Board: OXBO).

The conference commences with Life Science industry and investor panels on Wednesday July 29th with Company presentations on Thursday July 30th, followed by Investment Products presentations on August 1st and 2nd.
